For the time is short – Ashley Watkins

For the time is short

Who will let their heart fail in the times ahead ?
Will you keep your faith or be the one left all alone in the bed ?

For the time is short and the Lord has to come !
On Earth as it is in Heaven let his will be done.

He has called many into his kingdom but not all have answered and came.
But soon one day every knee will bow and call out his name.

The last chapter in the book was written for those who will read it , learn of what’s coming and how to prepare.
Have Mercy oh Lord on those who have not taken heed to your voice and claimed they never really cared.

Make ready those you will Father and continue to work in their life.
Help them all , hold them up and give them the needed strength it takes to stay in this fight.

    After talking with the Lord about this, I feel inspired to quote a few verses from BOTH last chapters – from the Old Testament, and of “the Book” (I.e. Revelation 22) as referenced above.

    First, from Malachi 4:1-3:

    “For behold, the day is coming,
    Burning like an oven,
    And all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble.
    And the day which is coming shall burn them up,”
    Says the Lord of hosts,
    “That will leave them neither root nor branch.
    2 But to you who fear My name
    The Sun of Righteousness shall arise
    With healing in His wings;
    And you shall go out
    And grow fat like stall-fed calves.
    3 You shall trample the wicked,
    For they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet
    On the day that I do this,”
    Says the Lord of hosts.

    Now, go to the last chapter of the Bible, as mentioned above. Something significant happens in the scriptures quoted below, which is alluded to in the word which Ashley received.

    Revelation 22:7-11

    7 “Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.”

    8 Now I, John, saw and heard these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things.

    9 Then he said to me, “See that you do not do that. For I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship God.”

    10 And he said to me, “Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand. 11 He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.”

    Ask the Lord for understanding, for His Truth only come from the Spirit. Ask Him what He wants you to understand.

    I pray for all, and pray that all have ears to hear, and eyes to see.

    @Ashley,

    Thank YOU 😀!! I only try to serve the Lord in Spirit and Truth, knowing that He calls Me to love all!

    So, I also know I cannot TELL you what I understand, because I am just a man. Please know that “understanding” is different than KNOWLEDGE. But, I CAN lead another TO “the water”. This is why Jesus spoke and taught in parables – most people don’t understand this. He wanted us to understand that TRUE UNDERSTANDING only comes from the Spirit – not from man.

    Since you replied so eagerly, I will ask you – did you come to “see” a few of the things in these verses??? There are several things here, but I will give you a hint about one, for the meaning behind it is HUGE. Ask the Lord for His Discernment and PURPOSE for Revelation 22:8-9. When you come to understand, it will give you a much deeper understanding about many of the teachings of Jesus, of the Old Testament, and the waywardness of God’s children (from the beginning all the way to now).

    God bless you, Ashley. I pray for you, and I pray for all.

    I thank you again for your encouraging words!

    Your brother,
    Tim
